Boot Camp

I bet you’re tired of being cooped up. I know I’m ready for a reboot. Come revel with me & fellow exercise buffs in the freedom of a fresh-air Boot Camp at Alameda Park East! The combination of cardio drills and strength training stations will melt your stress away--and those extra pandemic pounds we're all toting around, to boot.

The variety of exercise choices make this a sure bet for every age and fitness level. You'll lift dumbbells & kettlebells, heft medicine balls and master stability balls, thump battle ropes & negotiate hurdles, step up to elevations & skim slide boards--and more! Feel like running ladders? We got that. Jumping rope? No problem. Doing a quick lap around the park? Let’s make it happen. Joining me in a bun-busting squat routine or round of tabata between weight training intervals are options, too, but however we raise that heart rate, you’ll work at your own pace and fitness level, and at the same time, be inspired to try just a little harder—and go just a little more. Under the sun of lovely Santa Barbara, and the watchful eye of a credentialed Group X instructor, you’ll gain muscle, burn fat, and make fast friends with like-minded people—all while having a great time.

A summer only opportunity, the September schedule is set for Monday evenings at 5 pm.

Special in September: bring a friend, and pay half-price!

Covid-19 cautionary practices in place! Hand sanitizer, gloves, and disinfectant wipes will be available throughout class, and social distancing is a snap in the wide open space of Alameda Park*. Participants are encouraged to bring their own face coverings, but face masks are available on request.

Sold individually for just 15.- per class, pay online by clicking the Purchase tab in the banner menu & leave your wallet at home. Rather pay as you go? No problem! Cash, and all major credit cards are accepted at the park before class, too. 

*class is held in the southeast quadrant of Alameda Park East, (just down from Kid’s World) Alameda Park East is located between Micheltorena & Sola streets, and Santa Barbara & Garden.

Personal Training

More of a one-on-one person? Private training sessions are also available. Initial consultation and fitness assessment is always free of charge. With an option to train with me in your home, I’ll bring all the equipment necessary to meet your fitness goals—and all the know-how needed to accommodate any physical challenges you may face. If training in a gym is preferred, you can join me at the gym for a small additional charge.

Whatever your preference, you can be certain that choosing me as your personal fitness coach assures you’re training with a professional as dedicated to helping you attain your personal best as you are. 

Available year-round, 7 days a week, 8:00 am-8:00 pm, you decide when to hit those weights! Rates start at $60.- per 75 min individual session.
